Yep, you read it right! Lauren Oliver affectionately dubs her upcoming book, Pandemonium, Pandy. So cute & fun!
I had the pleasure of meeting Lauren last night at her book signing at Children’s Book World. It’s a cozy little place, you’d miss it if you didn’t know it was there I suppose, but nice.
Lauren is super sweet and so adorable. This would be the second book signing I’ve been to, Alyson Noel’s being the first, and I’m really loving it! I want more!
Meeting Lauren was awesome and hearing her talk about her very different books, her style of writing, and advice for writers was just great. I loved hearing about her inspiration for Leisl & Po, her latest novel for Middle Grade. It’s loosely based on her life, since she lost a very close friend of hers not too long ago, it was really sad to watch her tell it and you could see emotions pouring through. I love the cover and the illustrations inside, which were also based on her very awesome drawings (she says she’s not an artist, but I loved her drawings, even if the illustrators were a bit more detailed), were gorgeous. I might have to pick that one up!
I’m super excited for Pandemonium to come out, and it was hilarious how Lauren was telling all the bloggers to start a trend so that everyone would call the book Pandy. I love it! It’s cute and definitely grabs your attention, right?!
Loved meeting Lauren and can’t wait to read Before I Fall.
